Inter Milan are ready to battle Arsenal for two of their summer targets Yann M'Vila and Younes Belhanda.
Arsene Wenger is expected to spend money in the summer as he attempts to re-establish his side as genuine title challengers next season.
And it has been reported that the Arsenal manager will make reinforcing his midfield his priority, with M'Vila of Rennes and Montpellier's Belhanda identified as potential signings.
But it appears as though Wenger will face stiff competition from Inter for both players. The Italian giants are yet to make contact with either Rennes of Montpellier, according to Corriere dello Sport, but are preparing to launch bids once their Serie A campaign comes to end.
